I want to comment on the student that says that the school "has not respect for civil rights". There was an incident in Dec 2016 where a student wore a VERY disrespectful and offensive shirt to school. He was asked to change and he started touting his first amendment right to free speech. His shirt was not a positive or respectful message. It was a tool to gain attention, in a sad attempt to get a reaction out of students and staff. My daughters attended school that day and said that he was boasting that he had a right to wear his very offensive shirt. I feel like I need to set the record straight on the very misleading post. With that said, there are actually three campus in this charter. The Independent Study program is currently located in Casmalia, the TK-8th grade (referred to locally as OAK8) is located in Los Alamos and shares the campus with Olga Reed Elementary, and Orcutt Academy High School is located in Orcutt. OAHS currently has 600 students, OAK8 has 132 students, and the Ind Study Program does not have a set number of students in their program. If you have a student that you want to attend either OAK8 or OAHS then you have to enter them into a lottery that opens in November and closes around the last week of January for the next school year. Check their website for more information. I have been involved on both campuses and have had kids in the school for about 7 years now. The posts from anything over 5 years ago stating that there are no programs in OAHS are outdated. I would have agreed with them 5 years ago, but since then the school has taken great strides in providing sports programs, clubs, and organizations. They also have many AP classes and concurrent enrollment programs through Allan Hancock College. I have had students at both ends of the spectrum. One who struggled to maintain her grades above C's and one who was very academically motivated and would not settle for anything short of straight A's. Both students had positive experiences at the school. For the kid that struggled we had good communication with the teachers and were able to keep her on track. The over achiever had all the opportunities to excel and was offered a great academic scholarship to her University of choice. Neither would have been possible with out teachers and staff that care about the students.Overall great schools!

We moved here from Missouri and my 2nd grader is doing work that my older kids didnt start until the end of 3rd grade in Missouri! They are very hard working teachers and they keep the kids interested and wanting to learn. My son loves the happy and friendly environment and comes home EVERY day excited anout what he learned in class. A + for Alice Shaw!

While Dunlap attempts to provide quality education to its students, it misses the mark in including students with differences in school wide and grade level education, especially at the lower grades.

The fact my child is stuck at this school honestly makes me sad. If your child struggles or needs help in any way you will not get it here and you can count on the teachers and staff pointing the finger and trying to make it seem like you are just a poor parent doing a poor job helping your own child. Teachers are supposed to build your child up not bring them down.
